Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

Polygamy Is 'Next Civil Rights Battle,' Activists Say

"Nearly three years after U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) argued that a U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning a Texas ban on sodomy would be used to legitimize other sexual practices outside traditional marriage, Santorum's prediction may be coming to pass.

Since the high court issued its 6-3 ruling in June 2003 in the Lawrence v. Texas case, national attention has focused on the issue of same-sex marriage. However, a Christian group claims the ruling guarantees that polygamy -- the union of one man with more than one woman -- is "the next civil rights battle."

The case, Bronson v. Swensen, is slated to be argued before the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this year.

While there are presently only a handful of challenges to anti-polygamy laws, that number could increase dramatically. A number of sources estimate that about 50,000 families in the United States practice polygamy, including hundreds of Laotian Hmongs in Minnesota and members of Mormon splinter groups in Arizona and Utah."

Polygamy is also supported in principle by a wide variety of organizations, including the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)..surprise surprise ...

"If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual gay sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery," Santorum said. "You have the right to anything," the A.P. quoted Santorum as saying."

Santorum is a leader on the issue of traditional marriage. The senator supports a constitutional amendment protecting marriage as that of a union between a man and woman.

It's been said: Marriages are made in heaven. That speaks to a sentiment about the destiny of relationships, and the Godliness involved in creating "soul mates."

Folk wisdom of nearly all cultures has perennially acknowledged this phenomenon in one way or another. Implicit in the thinking of people who honour this view is the belief that marriage is "sacred."
Marriage has been most auspiciously formalised between man and woman. Choosing a partner and life mate was to be based on more than initial, sexual attraction or some shared interests.

The plethora of customs and traditions surrounding 'marriage' have one common theme: It is the inference that -marriage has a sacred as well as a mundane dimension.
It is a major life transition ritual.

The belief in the sanctity of marriage (between a man and woman)are cornerstones of an entire cosmological view of the world, -the purpose of human life, procreation and ultimately - the universe.
The perennial wisdom implicit in the Bible as well as folklore is to be trusted.
It has always taught us that the sacredness of this union has import that surpasses what societal trends and conventionality "of the moment" would unreasonably dictate.

The floodgates have been opened my friends. Prepare yourselves for Battle.

    Although I personaly am very happy with one wife, I have no problems with someone having more than one provided all of the wives know it and are in agreement. I just figure it is none of my business. The irony is that the patriarchs of the bible had mulitple wives-Soloman was said to have had hundreds as well as a harem of concubines. But now the religious view is one on one. I have no problems with that belief either but why force it on someone else? I reckon that my libertarianism is coming out but I just cannot see that making laws to enforce a moral viewpoint that is not harming anyone else is counter productive. We have too many other problems to worry about such as the ragheads who are out to kill us.
